ABSTRACT

This paper aims to investigate the correlation between patterns and functions of the Korean adjective ‘anida’ as a lexical negative and to examine how differently it is manifested between spoken and written corpus. The data used for this study mainly comes from the 21st Sejong Spoken Corpus consisting of educational books and naturally-occurring conversations and each of them is composed of 100,000 words. We randomly extract 200 sentences from each corpus. In order to analyze ‘anida’, we take the following procedures: First, the patterns of ‘anida’ construction are analyzed according to discourse-pragmatic context. we can discriminate between propositional negation patterns and discourse negation patterns. Second, based on the lexico-grammatical features, ‘anida’ constructions are categorized into 2 types of argument structure. Third, from a morphological point of view, we can discover some tendencies among various inflectional forms of ‘anida', The functions of ‘anida’ are correlated with not only lexico-grammatical feature of the constructions but also discourse-pragmatic context and inflectional forms.
